Pretty easy survey to take. Would love to see the foam mats you can put in the pits available for sale.

Thank you to the people who have taken the survey so far, we have a few new ideas for products.

The more people we get to take this quick 4 minute survey, the better we can develop items for you.


The decal/sign/bumper package, if reasonably priced, actually sounds awesome Alex. A bundle could possibly take away the cost of a team like mine separately getting these items made.

Hope to see an example of such a bundle up somewhere soon.

At any time, we can do vinyl decal packages.

If you want your logo/number done for bumpers or decals for the robots. Shoot me off an email and we can make it happen.

There are a few ideas in the works about small specific vinyl packages. Stay Tuned, hopefully will be displayed in late july at a off-season event.

One of the suggestions from the survey, were for us to make QR codes in vinyl.

We are proud to announce, that they are now for sale on our site. Enjoy!


There have been many great ideas coming from the results of the survey!

We look forward to unveiling some new products at the 2011 IRI competition.

Stay Tuned for more information.

What do you use a QR code for in FRC, whether vinyl or some other material?

Put it up in your pit, on your robot, your tool box, random walls, anything, anywhere.

You can link the QR codes to anything from a phone number to a website to just a slogan.

How cool would it be to show the judges information about your robot design by taking out your phone/pad and scanning a QR code on your robot? I think that would amaze some judges and you would get some hardware because of it.

Also, how about the community events that teams partake in? Same thing as the judges, but exchange it with your local community people.

QR codes are starting to be a “cool” thing to do and you see them every where from commercials to posters. It’s an easy way to get people to interact with the information you want them to see.

I have one on the side of my truck and I have had a few compliments about it. I have it linked to my website and it looks nice.

Here’s some more information about what a QR code is for some that may not know.

What is a QR code?

A QR code (short for Quick Response) is a specific matrix barcode(or two-dimensional code), readable by dedicated QR barcode readers and camera phones. The code consists of black modules arranged in a square pattern on a white background. The information encoded can be text, URL or other data.
